    Live Sex Shows Force Steam-Cleaning Of University Of Newcastle Library

    College is expensive, but one young coed's plan to earn money for school has gotten her in hot water and forced a steam-cleaning of the library.

    Officials at the University of Newcastle near Sydney, Australia, discovered the unidentified exhibitionist masturbating at the Auchmuty campus library and posting the live solo sex shows to a pay-per-view website, according to the Newcastle Herald.

    The woman was eventually caught after staff members were given a photograph and told to call security if they saw her.


    As a result of her porny part-time job, areas of the library where she had allegedly performed had to be steam cleaned, according to News.com.au.

    A spokeswoman admitted University officials were "very disappointed" to discover a student was "using internet facilities inappropriately on campus," the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

    "We have a code of conduct that clearly outlines the sorts of behaviors the university expects from its community on campus," the woman said, according to the paper. "The matter has now been investigated and the student has been counselled. An important part of our duty of care is to protect our students' privacy and it would be inappropriate for the university to provide specific details in relation to the incident."

    Although University officials weren't happy to find out the library had been used as a porn set, the folks at WTFark.com think that could actually be a selling point.

    They have turned the scandal into a possible recruiting video for the school, which can be seen above.

    ​Dang! Are the dorms so overcrowded that a girl has to seek privacy in the library?

    Well it does not say whether or not she used her own laptop or one of the school's computer.
    While I do understand the need for money, and the need for a stress breaker, this seems to raise other questions:
    What the hell was she doing to cause steam cleaning? How long did she give these shows, and how many did she do before she caught and counseled?
    If you wanted to get a little privacy, that would be the place, but this is what would happen when kids are not drilled in the proper reverence of the place.

    Town Opposes Winnie the Pooh for Unclear Gender

    WARSAW, Poland — Nov 22, 2014, 2:26 AM ET


    Officials in a Polish town have opposed a proposition to name a playground after Winnie-the-Pooh due to the bear's unclear gender and immodest clothing.

    The matter was debated in a closed-door meeting weeks ago in the central Polish town of Tuszyn, but didn't get much media attention in Poland until recent days.

    Voice recordings of the meeting were leaked to the media in which officials complained that Pooh Bear is immodestly dressed and also lacks a clear gender. One called the bear a "hermaphrodite."

    Some said a fully clothed Polish cartoon bear named Uszatek would be a better choice.

    One of the Pooh Bear opponents, Ryszard Cichy, told a newspaper that he had been joking at the end of a discussion on a playground that had gone on too long.

    I was shaking my head and hyper-ventilating when I saw that on the news. Really? An animated character who is fur-covered being called indecent? What next? Are the same idiots who brought that up going to trap every wild animal and dress them up?

    Joking or not, some people have too much time on their hands and definitely should get a reality check! I guess the next step in cartoons will be to create balloon like blobs who are non-human, non-animal and only say bleep, bleep, blop, beep beep. Great! Now, we will have a brand-new generation of robots!

    Excuse me for a moment, I have to grab a bucket and throw up.

    And if that wasn't enough, there is the fact that they were trying to determine this animated character's Gender. Of what practical reason is the wonder of that topic? It is bad enough that there are many people who get turned on by cartoons and kids, what sort of pervert is it that is concerned about the sex of a stuffed bear? What were they wanting to do to Pooh, and would they just stop at him? I feel sorry for Piglet, Kanga and Roo, and want to grant Eeyore asylum before they unpin the tail off the donkey and do something more sinister to him.

    I have no problem if they want to use a local cartoon animal instead of Pooh. That I understand and commend them for that. The fact that being Pooh has no pants on should not cause the uproar they are stirring up, but that area of the globe is strange. Just across the North Sea in Finland, they banned Donald Duck for the same reason: being pantless. As for those toons you're afraid are coming, they sad fact is they have hit, but hopefully won't spread further than a couple of school papers. Some people's inner children need to be taken to the woodshed.

    and now I have to empty my bucket...

    I don't know how old you are Mikey, but the cartoons I watched when I was a child were : "Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote", etc. No, I never had the idea of dropping a ten ton boulder on anyone. Neither of the two characters wore clothes... Funny that none of the birds I feed wear them either, nor did the wolf-cross canine I had for 15 years.

    Has the normal I.Q ratio dropped down to 50?

    Please remind me to deposit a bunch of flowers on my dearly departed friend's grave whose name was: "Common sense".

    I'm 52 next month, and I watched the same ones. Or handing anyone a lit bomb, walk into a room shooting everything and one in sight, put an infant on a brontosaurus's head, ran the underside of a treadmill, turned my teepee into a helicopter, etc.The Cat, nor the Chow/Shepard that my roommates have been running around naked under all their fur, and the world hasn't ended yet.

    I think 50 would qualify for Mensa status, if they could fill out application.

    And while your at it, let's not forget her husband, Sanity. The angels weep for their passing.

    Welcome to my little circle of friends whom I greatly admire and love!

    This tiny little populated forum is a haven from stupidity! We can't get to the nearest coffee shop as a group, but let's face it, the coffee is much cheaper where we are in front of our computers!
    Going to lay respect to Common Sense tomorrow, will bring another bunch of flowers for Sanity.

    Thank you, it's great being here.

    I know I missed it for the five years I let Life get in the way, but schooling and a roof take precedence over here, unfortunately. I agree with you on this being a haven. Some people I used to hang around here with aren't here, so it is all new. But, the Mods, and several of the sane ones are here. As much as I wish we could all walk into a Tim Horton's and take it over, it is cheaper this way, and a lot more satisfying. Also there is no need to get dressed or put on war paint, etc... lol

    I will also place a wreathe on their graves, but at the moment, I need to go get at least a nap. I will see you tomorrow. Have a good night, my friend.

    Maine teen broke into homes naked, looking for car keys: police

    By Dave Sherwood

    BRUNSWICK Maine Mon Nov 17, 2014 11:10am EST

    (Reuters) - A naked Maine teenager who broke into two homes over the weekend while his parents' house was engulfed in flames is scheduled to appear in court on Monday to face attempted burglary charges, according to police.

    Police said Logan Valle, 18, forced his way into the two suburban homes in Falmouth, just north of Portland, while naked on a freezing cold night in order to steal keys to nearby parked cars. He was found hiding in the attic of one of the homes and arrested.

    He is scheduled to appear in court in Portland, Maine's largest city, on Monday afternoon, police said in a statement on Monday.

    At around the same time of the break-ins, the town's fire department was called to the nearby home of Valle's parents, according to police reports. His parents were not at home at the time of the blaze, but the house was destroyed, police said.

    Falmouth police also said Valle's car, which was parked at a local country club two miles away, was also lit on fire but not destroyed.

    Police said they are investigating the cause of both fires.

    I think this is another one of those new Mensa candidates.I also have a feeling that he's going to try hitting Mom and Dad up for his bail.I assume he left his clothes in the car he set afire. Now, where was he going to put the keys after he grabbed them? Where was he going, and how would he fill them up, without money or cards? I am fairly certain someone would have noticed a naked guy trying to fuel or sell a car, even up there. He would have had to steal some clothes eventually. I am not sure Sherlock would find it compelling enough; I do not believe Clouseau would attempt to s

    Let me see... Cold night, car found at a country club 2 miles from the burglary scene, the guy is naked. How did he make it to those houses? Perhaps the guy is a victim and was dumped in the area or he wasn't working alone.

    Forensics should determine whether his clothes were left in the car. News report too sketchy. Let us know if anything else comes up!

    Default update to the Naked teen story

    Falmouth teenager charged in break-ins was high on drugs, records say

    A Falmouth teenager accused of breaking into two houses while naked was high on drugs, possibly the synthetic stimulant known by the street name “bath salts,” according to court documents.

    Logan Valle, 18, remained in the Cumberland County Jail on Tuesday after his arrest Saturday night on charges of burglary, theft, criminal mischief and criminal trespass. The staff at the jail in Portland said he could not grant interviews because he was under medical observation.

    Following Valle’s arrest, it was determined that he had overdosed on drugs and suffered from frostbite, the court documents state. After the incidents, friends said they believed his behavior was attributable to drug use.

    Police and witness statements submitted to Cumberland County Unified Criminal Court in support of the charges against Valle provided more details on what happened that night. The reports make scant reference to the fire that destroyed the Valle family home about the same time and do not mention an attempt to set fire to Valle’s car, which was parked at the Falmouth Country Club, not far from the family’s house at 12 Inverness Road.

    Police have not implicated Valle in either incident.

    Officers were on their way to the house fire at 10:45 p.m. Saturday when they received a call about a naked man running on Fieldstone Lane – about two miles away – with a homeowner in pursuit.

    Valle had first gone to the home of Barry and Paula Spencer at 35 Fieldstone Lane, entering through an unlocked garage door and then walking into the kitchen. Valle knew their son, who was out of town. The Spencers were involved in a high-profile case two years ago when they were accused of hosting an underage drinking party.

    On Saturday night, the couple were watching television when a man wearing no clothes grabbed keys from the kitchen, then entered each of three cars in the driveway, trying unsuccessfully to start one. The Spencers described Valle as agitated and irrational and possibly under the influence of drugs.

    While at the house he put on a pair of sneakers belonging to one of the Spencers’ sons and wrapped a towel around himself, police said.

    When told the couple had called police, Valle fled to a neighboring house.

    Mark and Renae Roy also were home at 29 Fieldstone Lane, along with their four children, and already in bed when they heard two loud bangs and a crash, they told police. Valle allegedly broke one of the outdoor lights off the house and used it to smash the glass in a door. Roy saw him jump through the window wearing only a pair of sneakers, police said.

    Mark Roy confronted him and Valle ran for the basement. Roy grabbed a vacuum cleaner to use as a weapon if needed and waited for police.

    “The kid appeared scared, cold and on drugs,” Roy wrote in his statement to police.

    Two Falmouth police officers arrived and found Valle in a narrow storage room. Valle surrendered, allowing himself to be handcuffed and taken outside. He was walking unsteadily, his body was cold, and he was breathing rapidly, moaning each time he exhaled. His condition deteriorated and he was taken to Maine Medical Center in Portland.

    An officer who accompanied Valle later told his supervisor that Valle was believed to be under the influence of the drug called bath salts. “Bath salts” is a street name for a hallucinogenic stimulant that causes bizarre – often paranoid – behavior and sometimes makes users feel extremely hot, leading them to take off their clothing. It has nothing to do with the mineral salts that are used to soften bath water.

    Dr. Karen Simone of the Northern New England Poison Control Center said the center has received many calls for people who have taken bath salts or some other synthetic drug, often when they believe they were taking ecstasy or its street name, “molly.”

    Valle is being held on $10,000 bail and on a charge of violating probation stemming from a conviction for driving under the influence of alcohol while he was a minor.

    The drugs explain most all of it... except how they are not mentioning the fires. There was another report that said that the cops had been called for domestic disturbances between he and his parents a couple of times in the past year. There was also mention of one of the Family's boxers missing since the fire, though she had been seen in the front yard while the emergency personnel answered the fire call.
